Mothers of Children With Special Needs Bond at Friendship Circle Retreat

Planning outings and trips for children with special needs is nothing unusual for the Friendship Circle of Michigan, but a recent weekend retreat for the mothers who care for these children certainly proved a novel experience. The women were expecting a few days of respite and a relaxing getaway; they left with more than 20 new sisters and a fresh perspective on their children, each other and themselves. The retreat, called “Shabbat at the Spa,” took place Feb. 28 to March 2 at the Riverwalk Place in Gladwin, Mich.—a spacious hotel/conference center with a full-service spa, luxurious rooms and suites, and an accommodating staff. Attendees enjoyed spa services on Friday afternoon and Sunday, and participated in a variety of Shabbat-oriented activities, beginning with a group candle-lighting on Friday night and continuing through Havdalah on Saturday night.
